St. Paddy’s Day 5K Dash to Benefit PCSC Student Battling Brain Tumor 


St. Paddy’s Day 5K Dash to benefit PCSC student battling brain tumor


Plymouth High School will host the St. Paddy’s Day Dash on Saturday, March 14, 2020, at 1 p.m. in honor of Jaisyn Reese, a Lincoln Jr. High School seventh grade student who was diagnosed this year with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), a rare pediatric brain tumor. Proceeds raised will go directly to the Reese family to counteract escalating medical expenses. Currently, the 13-year-old LJHS student is at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis receiving radiation treatment.

Online registration for the 5K is now open, however, an hour before the dash, on-site registration will take place at Plymouth High School. Adult registration which includes a t-shirt is $20, student registration is $15 and also includes a t-shirt as well. Online registration closes on Wednesday, March 4, t-shirts are not guaranteed after this date.

The Plymouth Community School Corporation is rallying behind the Reese family by bringing back the St. Paddy’s Day 5K Dash. The event has been held in the past to support other PCSC students and staff who were battling cancer or other serious health challenges.

This year’s 5K will start at Plymouth High School. Participants can run, walk or travel at their own pace.

Bruce’s “Big Grill” will be at Plymouth High School selling pulled pork sandwiches and students who are part of the Lincoln Jr. High School National Honor Society will host a bake sale. All proceeds will go to the Reese family.

Stand united with PCSC by being part of the St. Paddy’s Day Dash that supports Jaisyn and his family as they fight to save his life.
